MAI LOGIC UNveiled the SMART TERMINAL at the Modern Computing Technology and Product Demonstration Forum IN CHINA
FREMONT, CA. Sep 15, 2004. Mai Logic Incorporated, a fabless IC and system design house specializing in designing and marketing innovative chipset and platform solutions for use in PowerPC microprocessor based applications, announced the Smart Terminal architecture at the Modern Computing Technology and Product Demonstration Forum on September 8, 2004, in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.
Hosted and organized by Chinese E-Commerce Association, Chinese Aviation Technology Group, and Beijing-based ARC.9 Computing Co. Ltd., the main purpose of this forum is to introduce and promote the Smart Terminal having general desktop functions to accelerate adoption of Linux on PowerPC solutions for implementations in client devices, network computers (NC), and office automation (OS) systems for governmental, educational, financial, industrial, and commercial organizations in China.
The system architecture of the Smart Terminal is based on the Teron Mini platform, a Mini-ITX form factor (170mm X 170mm) mainboard which incorporates Mai Logic's Articia S chipset and IBM's latest PowerPC 750FX/GX microprocessor. Running on the open-sourced Linux OS, the "Ready for IBM Technology" certified Teron Mini makes the Smart Terminal a robust and reliable computer. Thanks to its compact size, low power consumption, low cost, and overall versatility, the Smart Terminal is ideally suited for the rigorous demands large mission-critical users. Multiple Smart Terminals can access applications at the server while running local Linux desktop applications simultaneously by utilizing a hierarchical, distributed architecture which links hundreds of systems together into one seamless network that reduces costs, accommodates consolidations, boosts security, and increase productivity. "The small size and performance power of the Smart Terminal provide distinct advantages to both customers and system integrators," said Jason, Hou, Chief Executive Officer of Mai Logic.
With technical assistance and support provided by IBM, California-based Mai Logic Incorporated and its affiliate, Inguard Incorporated, there were 300 hundreds of high-performance and diskless smart terminals setup in this event for demonstrating video broadcasting, video streaming, 3D game application, Linux Office Suite application, and RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) client application. The on-site demonstration enabled all attendees to use new high-performance/low-power PowerPC Linux based Smart Terminals and experience a verity of applications it can offer.
In addition, IBM and Xi'an Jiaotong University announced a jointly established Linux research lab in the forum. Led by Inguard, IBM and China's Ministry of Education, this is the first Linux research lab located on the campus of a higher educational institute in China. As a part of China's 863 program (National High Technology Research and Development Program of China), this lab aims at providing a Linux educational platform toward the western China.
Estimated more than 300 people attended this event, including high-profile government officials from Ministry of Information Industry, scholars and experts from Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, managers of prospective and potential customers in electricity, petrochemical, financial, and telecommunication industries, executives of ARC.9, IBM, Mai Logic, and Inguard, as well as journalists from major media such as SINA, the largest Internet News Agency in China and Xinhua, the largest news agency in China.

|In reply to Comment 60 (hooligan/dcs):|
The person behind these impersonations is the same user as Paul Gadd ex of amiga.org ( see his diatribe about Eyetech being able to afford enough kickbacks to get Mikey_C a porsche on moobunny ).
If you criticise him, as "bobson" did on the "trolls" thread on amiga.org you will get him posting bile on other boards all over the place using your nickname.
Bobson is Bobsonsirjohnny from aw.net and amiga.org, he also is famous for burning a genesi poster in 2002 for which he apologised.
The troll yesterday was paul gadd posting as bobson.
Of course Paul Gadd ( who is a hypocrite that slams sites for censorship when he gets moderated and then slams them for bias when someone who criticses him does not get moderated as Wayne can attest ), arch troublemaker in chief, who also wishes death by cancer on anyone whom he does not like, would have a harder job if people that used nicknames on here registered their nicknames and used the login system.
So yes there is a user called bobson, yes he is in #amigaworld, yes he uses amiga.org and amigaworld.net and his only ( recent ) crime is to offend "Paul Gadd" ( actually the real name of Gary Glitter the 70s musician who was convicted of paedophilia so it really is not this guys real name either ) sentence for which is merciless impersonation to get the ranks of whatever side said offender is not on ( in this case blue ) to go after him with pitchforks.
As an experiment, ask someone, like timofonic or seehund, to call Paul Gadd a bit of scum and see him, in predictable fashion, spam the net as "timofonic" or "seehund" saying "die red scum, your Teron is broken and the ArticiaS will give you aids" or other such incoherent rant.
Now you know that this low iq mixer has been at the heart of a hell of a lot of the inter-community fights that have gone on maybe it is time we all ask ourselves the question "is this paul gadd stirring" before we believe that the next anti red/blue diatribe made by red/blue illuminary is really them.
Once answered of course, if it really is them, pass the pitchfork.
